Western Terrace, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
An elegant Regency property set in a fantastically central location, as part of a beautiful, stuccoed, tucked-away, terrace. This classical home is built in the style appropriate to the period and, as such, has a wealth of history, having been designed by the esteemed architect Amon Henry Wilds, who designed much of Regency Brighton around 1827. Latterly the house fell into disrepair and the property was later restored in 1992 by Canon Brian Brindley, retaining the beautiful front façade, thus conserving one of the city's finest architectural gems.

The property is arranged over four floors and has a well-proportioned and adaptable layout with wonderfully large windows affording ample natural light throughout. Beautifully presented, without the need for any immediate improvements, there is still scope, if required, to change or adapt the property (subject to the necessary consents) according to personal tastes. There are character features throughout including high ceilings, decorative skirting boards, floor-to-ceiling French doors, cast-iron balconies and a galleried staircase. Of particular note are some magnificent painted wall murals of Brighton which adorn part of the sitting room and was created by a previous owner.

On the lower ground floor is a sociable kitchen/dining room fitted with an attractive bespoke kitchen with a central island and painted wooden units. In addition to integrated appliances there is space for a range cooker.

The double-aspect sitting room occupies the ground floor and looks out over a small lawn with colourful flowers and climbers, featuring two Juliet balconies. The four bedrooms are arranged around a central hallway on the first and second floors, with the master bedroom boasting an en suite bathroom. Additionally, there is a shower room on the first floor and a separate family bathroom on the second floor.


The attractive front garden is lawned and surrounded by a paved path and mature, verdant climbers and borders, creating a pleasant space in which to relax in relative seclusion. The rear garden is designed in a courtyard style and laid to low-maintenance paving with climbers and a number of trees adding greenery. The property benefits from one off-street parking space on a tarmac drive in front of the property, with further on-street parking available locally (permit required).


Western Terrace is a beautiful Regency landmark street, tucked away in a quiet city square. Many of the properties on the street were also designed by Wilds and include several architectural delights, including an onion dome similar to Brighton Pavilion in Wild's former residence, Tudor Gothic detailing and Ammonite capitals, Wild's trademark. The centre of Brighton is easily accessible, with Western Road just steps away and a Waitrose superstore in close proximity. The terrace is 0.8 miles from Brighton train station which offers direct services to London in just over 1 hour.
